Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

The Joy of Pacing

Last weekend I was lucky enough to run along this beautiful trail (below) as I paced my friend, Annie, during the AR 50.  As I mentioned in a few of last year's posts (click here, here, and here), pacing is a great introduction to ultras.  You get all the benefits: amazing aid stations & pristine trails, but none of the pressure.  Definitely my kind of race! 

This was Annie's race, though, and she did awesome!  Her 8:11 finish made her the 10th female overall.  Way to go, Annie!
